Weather/Climate Risk Management for the Energy Sector: Workshop Recommendations
Three working groups (WGs) were formed to address the five objectives of the Workshop. These objectives were: (A) To identify vulnerabilities of energy sector to extreme weather events in the context of climate change adaptation; (B) To identify impediments to the use of weather/ climate information for the energy sector in the context of climate change adaptation; (C) To suggest ways to improve and/or facilitate the transfer of knowledge between weather/climate scientists and the energy experts to allow an optimal use of climate risk management; (D) To outline proposals to improve the way in which weather/climate information is used for modelling demand and to provide warnings for potential disruptions on energy operations and infrastructure; (E) To discuss possible contributions of the weather/climate scientists and the energy experts to climate change adaptation policies for energy security. All three WGs addressed the first two objectives in their early phases of discussion and then each of them went into greater detail in discussing C (WG1), D (WG2), E (WG3). Thus objectives C, D and E are the distinguishing attributes of the three WGs. The main recommendations of each WG are presented in this chapter. See also Troccoli et al. (2009).
